got the helmet from saz today. it's great and fits my huge head :D
this is the tepmlate i created a while back:


helmet:




earcap (computerchip inside the bucket, than the mesh and the "opened" earcap. between mesh and chip three lights of a chain of light(see below)):


visor/rangefiner thing (i'll call it rangefinder or rf from now on :D):

this was my inspiration:


the chain of light(three for the earpiece, 6 for the rf, 1 for the antenna):



visorarea cut to the template-shape:




please let me know what you think :)

This is looking awesome! I love Garrus and the idea of the eyepiece is great. I can't wait to see more. =)

Definitely want to see if the RF comes out the way I think it will based on the design.  Looks like it'll be kick-shebs when complete.

Looks great!  I have a full "visor" in mind for my V.2.0 Tech Specialist and your WIP is really helping.  Thanks vod!   ;D

there are only two little differences to mine:
-they have brighter leds
-i dont' have carved anything in it. i had the idea to carve a circle and some stuff in it like the garrus one, but i will leave it the way it is i guess (i tested it at another peace, but i wasn't able to do this that clear i would want on the original one ;) )

but thanks for your interest :)

Looking good, ner vod. I like the take on the RF and the placement of the vent holes. If you haven't already, I would suggest some screening behind the holes.

Keep it up!

i'll use fly-screen like i did with my 501st-trooper:

when it's dark isnide the bucket, you can't see through it, normaly ;)


btw, the idea with the vent holes comes from one of lonewolf's scratches... wasn't my idea, completely ;)

silver spraypainted after primering it (this is my "beskar-color"):




taped the helmet for the black paint (started spraypainting a few minutes ago):




you'll mention that i changed or rather upgraded the paintscheme, there was always something missing, now i know what ;)
the art from hydra was a great inspiration for it (the blue one), she's doing really great designs:

i'm nearing completion... :)
paintjob is done, so far... i'll keep it, how it looks right now. maybe, but just maybe and not now... :P, i'll get one step back, the silver-black was great,too... see it in the pics.
colors are now: black,silver,white and anthracite
 antennas and stuff are glued in with hotglue, flyscreen in the back and the ventholes,too. rangefinder and flashlight are hold in place with magnets.
padding of the inside will follow later today.
the visorlense i'll be buying at the beginning of may(money... :D ), will be silver mirrored.

here are the pics:




the tape was horrible... paint got under it and at other points the paint ripped of he dryed paint :/



this is after "reparing" it with a brush:






first "testfit", another one will follow, after i padded the inside, with the flightsuit on
